Notice the front valance behind the bumper. After it was sand blasted it was full of holes and no replacement to be found. I cut it to make it 3/16 inch smaller and welded it on. Covered the in side with POR-15 and the outside with POR-15 and fiberglass cloth. Sprayed it with TY-Coat and fiber glassed it sanded it down and put 3-M Dyna- Glass where the glass met the metal. So far it is holding up.

Sound like you have it down pat it should work for a long time , I have been using por-15 for about 15-20 years and it is a super way to be a caso, but it works perfect...Bob

It should last long enough that the person who has it in 20-30 years may get P-Oed at you.

I am not a big believer in "miracle fixits", but there are a couple cans of POR15 in my fridge.

Just to make a small point, whenever I open a can of Por-15, I use a piece of Saran Wrap over the opening when I put the cover back on the can. This helps keep the paint from sealing the can.

If it last that long I'd say it was a pretty good fix.

Has anybody ever used that Klean strip rust convertor that comes from Wallyworld?If I do the fiberglass thing do I just paint the surface with it and just lay the cloth down on it.I would really like some instructions on how to do it.

Don't waste your money. And as far as POR-15 I buy the 6 pack of small cans. That wat I don't have to try to keep it.

I have not worked with POR-15 for some time, but when I did I really loved the stuff. When I am finished I put it in a thoroughly cleaned plastic oil container. Then screw the lid on tight and into the fridge. Stays good almost forever. Unscrew the cap pour what I need, clean the threads with paint thinner, screw the cap back on -- no problem.

Good way Joe, the main thing pour out what you need to do your work or part of it and seal up the rest asap, then open and do it again as needed, to make a weak area stronger one can just paint the area with Por-15 and lay in some fiberglass on top of the wet Por-15 and brush it over with more, get it good a wet once it dries the glass will be pulled down in to the groves and fill the areas, great stuff.
